If you are receiving dentures or implants, our dentists may recommend a vestibuloplasty to ensure that your new teeth will fit properly. This pre-prosthetic surgery works to remove extra tissue and widen the treatment area, allowing more surface area and space for complete or partial dentures or implants. To learn more about scheduling a vestibuloplasty in Princeton, New Jersey, and schedule your consultation with Dr. Joyce Ma, please contact Prime Dental Care today at 609-688-8818.
Our dentists will typically perform vestibuloplasty procedures using a dental laser. When you receive this treatment, our dentists will carefully remove the excess tissue and separate muscle attachments and connective tissue at the base of where the gums and cheeks meet. This deepens and widens the treatment area so that you can receive dentures or implants without difficulty.
Following your treatment, our dentists will provide you with post-op instructions to help you recover. Please follow these instructions closely to receive the best results from your procedure. Post-op instructions may include:
- Antibiotics, pain relievers and mouth rinses
- Keeping the area clean during the healing process
- Eating a soft diet
- Following a strict oral care routine
